I feel strongly both ways.

I think we can all definitively agree that Yoga is a piece of crap.

I think its pretty obvious, its time to part ways. Seriously, this guy doesnt want to be here, his body hasnt been right since he got here. Is the writing on the wall anymore obvious???

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

Okay ... I have no illusions about Brown's ability to start 16 games or play well in the games in which he does play. At the same time, given our demonstrable line concerns, why dump before we have to?

Give the young guys reps? Okay - he's a vet he doesn't need it. Keep him on the PUP until the regular season. Wouldn't he give us decent depth even if he's not starting? Not suggesting we keep him over others who step up in camp, but, for this year, we need bodies at RT. If we have a bunch of Joes at RT, keep the best Joes we got. If Brown is thought to be one of 'em great. If not, cut him.

Again, we haven't even had a full week of camp. Can we have a little patience guys??

How can he back anyone up when he can't even practice? He's had an entire off season to be healthy. Time to move on.

And he'll just re injure himself doing yoga. LOL. All kidding aside Brown's body is jut letting him down at this point of his career. He's like the Malcom Kelly of the o-line.

How exactly are you defining "complain"?

Willie is fine health wise

Very good to hear. Ive heard he "did not practice" yesterday and i think today but wasnt too sure what that meant. Hopefully hell be back soon.


Anyone know how much Big Mike Williams is weighing these days?

Pretty sure Willie Smith was out there doing individual drills yesterday.

Amani Toomer disagrees with you. In this case however, it's not going to heal JB's chronically malfunctioning hip. There doesnt appear to be a fix, other than not playing football. If we hold onto him just for depth fine, but he shouldnt be the starter. We need someone that can take every snap and improve along with the rest of the line.

Just the Yoga in the Power 90 wears me out.

Agreed. I occasionally try my wife's yoga exercises, even on the Wii Fit it's tough!

It takes a lot of strength along with balance to hold those positions. Some days when my back is stiff from sitting in the office, I'll do some after I lift weights.


The Skins' players have done a lot of team Pilates drills in the offseason too. Another "lady" exercise.

So you're good with the Polumbo/Hurt/Smith combination at RT and believe Brown can add nothing to it?

Me, I want to see how that particular group pans out before cutting ties w/ Brown. Not saying he should be on the roster when the season begins, just saying, no need to cut him right at the moment when he may end up being useful to us.
